What does Contract Works Insurance cover?

Contract Works is a specific Add-on Insurance for construction workers and building firms that work on sites. In addition to this core cover, building contract works insurance can usually be extended to include cover for a range of tools and machinery that you may require for the job.

Contract Works

This covers the value of the work being carried out prior to completion of the contract. It insures the works against accidental loss, damage, or destruction.

Hired-in plant

Should yours break down and you need to rent one, this will cover the rental costs.

Owned and hired in plant insurance

should any plant equipment you own or hire be lost, stolen, or damaged, this can cover replacement/ongoing hire fees.

Tools and machinery cover

Without your tools and machinery, you can’t operate. With tool thefts on the rise in the UK, you’d be wise to insure them. This covers tools and expensive pieces of machinery, such as diagnostic equipment. It can also provide Mac and Snap-On tools insurance, plus employees’ tools and toolbox options.
